Chicken Soup for the Soul (SOLD!!)


Christina Dodd - The Greatest Lover in All England

Since childhood, Rosie's life has been the stage—passing herself off as a boy playing women's roles in the somewhat disreputable theatrical troupe of actor Danny Plympton, Rosie's adoptive father. But when unanticipated danger confronts them, they must flee London, taking refuge at the estate of Sir Anthony Rycliffe. A handsome, devil-may-care rakehell, Tony quickly sees through Rosie's disguise.
But a lush, womanly form and eminently kissable lips are not the ravishing young beauty's only secrets—and the burning attraction Tony feels for her does not lessen the peril she has brought to his doorstep.

A group of men, including the narrator, is listening to the Time Traveller discuss his theory that time is the fourth dimension.

Penelope (SOLD!!!)

A modern-day fairytale...
Penelope Wilhern has everything a girl could want--a wealthy socialite family, an enchanted bedroom and some of the coolest clothes around.  There is only one problem: She was born into a cursed family and has the face of a pig.  
Hidden away from the world, Penelope now finds herself subjected to a string of snobby, blue-blooded bachelors in a desperate attempt to find her a husband in order to break the curse.  Though she yearns for something greater, what’s a girl to do when faced with a determined mother and her matchmaking sidekick?  Hoping to snap a photo of the mysterious girl, mischievous tabloid reporter Lemon hires down-on-his-luck Max to pose as a prospective suitor and infiltrate the family.  But when Max finds himself truly drawn to Penelope, he can’t bring himself to expose and disappoint her, so he just disappears.  Fed up with this latest betrayal and determined to live life on her own terms, Penelope decides to break free from her family and go out into the world in search of adventure. 
Disguising her identity with a scarf, Penelope discovers a wondrous world where freedom opens her eyes to possibilities she never knew existed.  Making new friends along the way, she discovers happiness in the most unexpected places.


Bulk Buy : Meg Cabot omnibus titles - SOLD!!!

Lizzie Nichols has a problem: she can't keep anything to herself. And when she opens her big mouth on a trip to London, her good intentions get her long-distance beau, Andrew, in major hot water. Now she's stuck in England with no boyfriend and no place to stay until the departure date on her nonrefundable airline ticket. Fortunately, Lizzie's best friend and college roommate, Shari, is spending her summer catering weddings in a sixteenth-century chÂteau in southern France. Who cares if Lizzie's never traveled alone in her life and only speaks rudimentary French? She's off to Souillac to lend a helping hand!
One glimpse of gorgeous ChÂteau Mirac—and of gorgeous Luke, the son of the chÂteau's owner—and Lizzie's smitten. But thanks to her chronic inability to keep a secret, before the first cork has been popped Luke hates her, the bride is in tears, and ChÂteau Mirac is on the road to becoming a lipo-recovery spa. Add to that the arrival of ex-beau Andrew, who's looking for "closure" (or at least a loan), and everything—including Lizzie's shot at true love—is in la toilette . . . unless she can figure out some way to use her big mouth to save the day

Anne Donovan - Being Emily (SOLD!!)

“No one in Wuthering Heights is nice. Good, bad, mad, but no nice.” Emily Brontë is the role model for teenage Fiona, a passionate artist growing up in a Glasgow working-class family. Anguished about the death of her mother, furious at her father (“I wish it was you that died”), trying to care for her younger siblings, she hitches up with Jas, a gorgeous Sikh guy, though they don’t have sex; then she betrays him with his brother, but then he loves her gay older brother. Fortunately there are no preachy parallels with her Brontë model. The resolution gets a bit heavy, but the fights are fun, and her turmoil grabs the reader. Its wicked, sad, and open: “I’d no idea whether he thought I didna want to or if he didna want to or what.” Caught by the “not nice” drama of love and grief in family, friends, sex, and art, readers will go along with the contemporary Glasgow narrative. And not only Brontë fans. The coming-of-age story is universal. --Hazel Rochman

David Nicholls - Starter for 10 (SOLD!!)

Now a major motion picture
The year is 1985. Brian Jackson, a working-class kid on full scholarship, has started his first term at university. He has a dark secret–a long-held, burning ambition to appear on the wildly popular British TV quiz show University Challenge–and now, finally, it seems the dream is about to become reality. He’s made the school team, and they’ve completed the qualifying rounds and are limbering up for their first televised match. (And, what’s more, he’s fallen head over heels for one of his teammates, the beautiful, brainy, and intimidatingly posh Alice Harbinson.) Life seems perfect and triumph inevitable–but as his world opens up, Brian learns that a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.

“Fresh, edgy and very funny . . . [Nicholls] has a talent for droll dialogue and a wonderful sense of the ridiculous.”
USA Today
“Starter for Ten has that elusive Hornby-factor. . . . It’s wincingly funny . . . a prospect to savour.”

Ally Carter - Heist Society (SOLD!!)

For as long as she can remember, Katarina has been a part of the family business—thieving. When Kat tries to leave “the life” for a normal life, her old friend Hale conspires to bring her back into the fold. Why? A mobster’s art collection has been stolen, and Kat’s father is the only suspect. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat’s dad needs her help.

The only solution is to find the paintings and steal them back. Kat’s got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family’s history—and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.

An unpretentious beauty who radiates kindness, Kate MacKenna doesn’t have a bad bone in her body–or an enemy in the world. So why are bombs igniting everywhere she goes? The first explosion brings her face-to-face with a handsome Charleston police detective. The second sends her into the arms of her best friend’s brother–a Boston cop who’s a little too reckless and way too charming for comfort.
